Dollar tacos use to be only on Tue. now it's Mon. to Fri. Great tacos...some of the best North of the border. I can usually eat only three since they are served on double corn tortillas with a generous serving of meat and topped with onion, cilantro and lime My favorite are the pastor tacos. Nice salsa bar with green and red with different hotness levels. Also a nice cold and spicy marinaded veggie condiment is free with onions, jalapenos, carrots etc. Our go to place when wanting authentic tacos.
They have a large menu with lots of other Mexican dishes,pozole, rellenos, enchiladas and much more.

This is the obvious choice when I'm in a hurry. But the coffee just isn't that good. They have all the typical flavors, and the service couldn't be better. They are quick and always fun. But don't go for the actual coffee. It's just not that good. I would like to see them have a good organic blend, even if it costs more.

Debby's Diner

Reviewed By joylmoran - Medford, Oregon

I ordered Clam Chowder and the meatloaf special with mashed potatoes and gravy, and grilled zucchini. The Chowder (served with soda crackers) was thick and hot--just right. The meatloaf was pretty good, and so were the mashed potatoes and gravy. The Zucchini was a little under-cooked and hard. The servings were ample. The meal satisfied my craving for comfort food around Christmas.

Arbor House International Restaurant

Reviewed By AvianiSiegel - Kehei, Maui

We've been dining here for 36 years and just love the place. The food is always fresh and delicious, the setting is relaxing and comfortable, the wine list is reasonable and mostly local, and the prices are surprisingly reasonable. The menu is eclectic, but we almost always order the specials which are whatever is fresh, local and in season. They often use fresh herbs from their garden and prepare EVERYTHING on site. Did I mention the HUGE amount of food? The biscuits made fresh daily, the salad dressings, and the soups come with every meal - all fabulous. It's basically family run, friendly, comfortable and DELICIOUS! You will not be disappointed.

Puck's Donuts

Reviewed By TripShawn - San Jose, California

This is a wonderful donut shop with pleasant service, great selection, and the freshest and tastiest traditional donuts you want to splurge on. Soft, fresh, moist, not sickeningly sweet, overly oily, or making you feel like you're eating terrible ingredients. Yes, it's not health food, but Puck's is a place we'd gladly go for our donut/sweet fix anytime we're in town!

Pomodori Bistro & Wine Bar

Great local bistro that has been doing a great lunch and dinner business here in medford since 2008. We specialize in northern style cooking with our own northwest flair. Using local ingredients when we can. We have the largest local wine selection in the area. And also one of the first to have local really quality red and white wines on tap as well.

Nice maitre'D showed us to our table (no booths) & I ordered the wild pan fried brandied shrimp, which was good. The accompanying Risotto was also very good. My husband had Medallions of Beef (not very tender) and we share. d a good Tiramisu. The place was very chilly, however, and I didn't like the wooden chairs. The service was good.

Pump House, Burgers and Brews

Reviewed By 557loriw - Medford, Oregon

The food was alright, better than some places and did offer grass fed options. Ordered a couple of burgers with fries and a salad. They were relatively quick in getting the food to our table. The seating was outside and they didn't really have enough heaters to keep all the tables warm. Really loved their fire pits with the glass, but the seating next to them was poorly set up. Food is ordered at the counter and then someone brings it to your table. For the cost of everything, I would have rather gone to a nicer restaurant with service.

El Comal Taqueria & Grill

Reviewed By NancyMcIntosh - Phoenix, Oregon

We had been eyeing this location and new ownership. It was pouring down rain and we were hungry so we decided to try El Comal. We were surprised to learn that they had only been open a couple days. You order at the counter usually but since it was an off time and we were the only ones there she came to our table to take our order. I ordered a chicken Chimichanga combo plate with rice and beans and my guy ordered a beef taco and pork tamale combo plate. Our order came very quickly and we were pleasantly surprised at the freshness and tastiness of our meal. Generally, most Mexican restaurants don't put much stock in the importance of good rice and beans. But I'm here to tell you that to me it is an important aspect of the whole meal. I figure if you can't do the sides well then I'm skeptical that you can handle the entre' any better. Well, El Comal has only been open a couple days and they have won me over! We will most assuredly be back. Great job peeps! I highly recommend giving them a try.

Elements Tapas Bar

Reviewed By Sander S - Redding, CA

A group of us visited Elements while in Ashland for a play. We made reservations as we were a large party which they accommodated. We were seated promptly and water and menus were available immediately. The bar is nice and the restaurant is somewhat small and nicely done.
Drinks were good but the food was the star. A vegetarian paella was spicy and smoky and didn’t miss the meat at all. Grapes rolled in local blue cheese and crushed pistachios was quite unique. Crispy cauliflower with garlic aioli was great. A flat bread with mushrooms, humboldt fog and spinach was awesome. Our only non veg dish, mahi mahi was also great. The deserts sounded wonderful but we were too full.
Service was excellent. The food came out in waves with great spacing and timing.
Try Elements. You won’t be disappointed.

Esaan Thai Cafe

Reviewed By Vickiwms - Phoenix, Oregon

Wanted to support a local new business in Phoenix, or. Ordered calamari appetizer, was like calamari tempura, brocolli tempura with the calamari.the sauce for calamari was good. Husband ordered #52 seafood something, which was primarily green beans, a couple "off "tasting shrimp and 2 mussels,a few very small scallops, steamed rice was ok......how can you go wrong I had their special mango curry, which to my dismay had a layer of fat/oil floating on top, the flavor was good, but could never skim the fat off to want to eat this. I have never seen curry presented like this, very very disappointing. I just hope we don't get sick from the food. Wait staff were pleasant , and attentive, doesn't make up for bad food. Not even worth a second try.
